Brick by Brick

We’re building this city

brick by brick,

watching the towers

grow,

the grounds

expand.

We fear facsimile,

our printed schematics

shown indecipherable.

 

We’re building this city

moment by moment,

converging skyward,

our dynamic vistas

betraying decay’s

catatonia.

We fear toppling

as elevators show us

penthouse views.

 

We garden this

inimitable establishment,

knowing soon enough

it will be time to make

more bricks.
